Milemarker is an US posthardcore band, rather fine and atypical. Here's an extract from their LP called "Anaesthetic" released in 2001.

LYRICS


"If it's not the radio waves coming from the tower on the hill that cloud our heads, then it's the one we see everyday, the one who's locked in our skin
But that's the last idea--that it's the first of kin
We've got to take it back
We sleep to sew the seams that we oppose
We shrink to fit our pre-assigned roles
Resist with each stitch
Split the seams and start all over again
Cut the pattern that fits
Ready-made rarely means ready to fit
A bleached white tightness to bind and gag and scold
The lines seen fit to fight will soon become our own
Skipping skimmed meals waiting, maintaining the waning form
The lines we fought to fit have now become our own
We cannot be tied down by roughly cut threads from the patterns of the CEOs
We must learn to tie up their tower and it starts with ourselves
They need no spokesman if you have no voice"
